I encourage you to dive into the course immediately so you can begin to understand the necessary steps to sell your company. Because this process to fully plan and prepare for an exit can take as long as 2-3 years, you have access to the course materials for three years from the date of enrollment to access the course. This means you will have ample time to work your way through the modules or come back to them at a later date to renew and refresh.
The great thing about Ready…Set…SELL is it is a go-at-your-own-pace course; it will differ for everyone. The entire course is delivered to you at once. Some students start at the beginning, others jump to a particular module or lesson that is most meaningful to them at this moment. It’s completely up to you. I recommend you listen to the module once or twice first, and then spend time reviewing the resources and doing the work where needed.
Each module includes a direct overview from me, and then we head into some slides to explain the content in more detail. You will also gain access to handouts and other resources to help you review and apply the topics. All recorded coffee hour question and answer sessions will be saved in each module of the course.
I would be surprised if you didn’t have questions, which is why we have set up coffee (or tea) hours on Friday mornings. If you cannot make the session due to schedule, not to worry. Send in your question in advance and listen to the recording that will be posted in that module. I cover a module each week. You will always have access to the latest recordings if you miss a live session.
After we deliver this initial founding members launch, we will then assess the next launch schedule. But as of this moment, we don’t expect to offer this again in 2023. When we do offer it again, the price will be much higher.
Great question, and I wish more people would ask it. To truly prepare and plan for an exit, it really takes about 3+ years. Not everyone has that much time because they may have a pending offer or want to sell sooner. But if you really want to maximize the value of your company and do everything we suggest in this course, we think 2 – 3 years before you sell is the perfect time to learn this content.
Founding members will receive a steep discount on the actual future course price. Plus, all founding members will receive access to the 2 bonus modules, on top of the core 7 modules. You will also receive every update we make to the course material going forward and receive it in advance of all other students. In addition, I will speak directly with each member should you have specific personal questions or concerns. And as a special gift, you will receive a signed copy of my book, Get Acquired for Millions.
Yes, we can grant separate access to another owner of the company. But we ask that you limit access to owners only. This content is NOT meant for your entire team or your management team. It is really geared toward owners, and we recognize there may be more than one. We do, however, reserve the right to terminate your access if we feel that this is being shared outside of your company.
Yes of course, we want you to be 100% happy. You will be given a 7-day period in which to ask for a refund once you receive access to the course, so be sure to log in and get started. You will need to demonstrate that you have reviewed modules and taken specific quizzes in order to receive a refund, that way we know you have spent enough time to really decide if this isn’t for you.
No, our students are CEOs and owners of small to medium size businesses, so we don’t feel a payment plan is necessary or required, plus the accounting department never likes payment plans anyway – just another thing for them to track.
About Me: Linda Rose
I help owners sell their company at maximum value. My specialties include how to plan and prepare your company for a sale, how to increase company value, and how to appeal to a buyer based upon your company’s unique value proposition.
Ultimately, I’m an example of what’s possible for my clients. I have personally sold three of my companies, one for 100% cash while being able to exit 45 days after my sale.
As a CEO, I learned the hard way and made many mistakes selling my companies; now, I make sure my clients don’t make those same mistakes.
I have helped companies from $1M to $80M successfully navigate the challenges of putting their company on the market without letting their employees, customers, vendors and, most importantly, competitors know that they are entertaining multiple offers.
As an M&A advisor, I provide advanced support to my clients in the preparation of documents, data rooms, and detailed financials, and work side-by-side with them through the lengthy process of vetting and ultimately finding the perfect buyer.
Now, I have combined my experience as a CEO of multiple technology services companies, CPA, author of Get Acquired for Millions, and successful M&A advisor in this course, Ready…Set…SELL.
